Harvest is in full swing for both corn and soybeans as well as student talent. Next week the ACES + LAS Career Fair is hosting 128 organizations from a wide range of disciplines. We have employers who are seeking majors from agricultural biological engineering to psychology. Many of these employers are interviewing the next day. As of this writing, all 65 interview rooms for the day after the fair are reserved.

For a complete list of employers and other information about the event, visit https://illinois.joinhandshake.com/career_fairs/5613/student_preview. It is recommended that students apply online before the fair so that they can interview the next day. It is not too early to attend a career fair even if students are not looking for a full-time job or internship yet. Employers are building their pipeline for talent. Freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to attend so that when they are looking for an internship or job, they are comfortable with the process.  Additionally, many recruiters remember students from previous years!

To help students prepare, the ACES + LAS Career Fair Prep is set for Oct. 1, from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm in 213 Greg Hall. A recruiter panel will be answering student questions about preparing for the fair. Check Handshake @ Illinois account under ‘Events’ for more information.  You can also check out: https://go.illinois.edu/ACES_LAS-CF for more tips!
